My 5-year-old daughter just started piano lessons with this book and it is great. It introduces important concepts (white keys, black keys, hand position, finger numbering, forte, piano, higher, lower, bass clef, treble clef, quarter note, half note, whole note, names of the keys) in a way that is fun. The CD is great b/c the short pieces are fun to hear, and hearing it helps my daughter know how her piece is suppose to sound. This book does not take them all the way to reading music, but it sets the foundation. I also think the short pieces give my daughter a sense of mastery as she learns to play something that was just a bit harder than the last piece.

(After a certain point though they can't accompany the CD on a given song b/c it is too hard for them to time it perfectly to keep up. The CD is still very valuable in letting them get to know the pieces. My daughter's teacher recommended we play the CD as much as possible.)

My 3-year-old also loves this book and CD and will sit at the piano flipping the pages as the songs on the CD change. He wails when he doesn't get his "turn" on the piano. I wish I had had this when I was a kid and learning piano. Overall, an excellent choice.

I am no pianist, but I am able to teach piano till probably level 3-4 Alfred's lessons. I play a bit and have been always involved in my oldest daughter's lessons. I have learned a lot myself too. My 5 year old scatter brain or rather active son is not ready to take piano seriously and I don't even have access to a piano teacher who accepts kids his age (pre reading and this active!). He begged for piano lessons so I bought him this book along with Alfred's Prep Course A set.
Alfred's a bit too fast for him. He needed something even easier and more fun. This is real fun for him. He can't get enough and he just cracks himself up with some songs, laughing no matter how many times he plays it. The best is Kangaroo song with it's boing in a wiggly voice at the end. He made me make a movie of him playing it for his cousin :) I think after this book he would be ready for Prep Course from Alfred's set. I also need to add that my 7 year old is having fun with it. She took piano lessons with a teacher almost a year ago, stopped at Alfred's level 1a book and didn't want to continue her lessons. Now almost year later, she is having fun with this one with her brother. It's way too easy for her, but fun. After not playing piano for almost a year, she is asking for lessons again... Thanks to this silly book :)
However, I must add that this book would have been too simple, boring and easy for my oldest daughter at this very same age: 5. We had something similar for her to start with: Hal's with CD and it wasn't her cup of tea. She went right into Alfred's level 1a and flew through it in a month. She got to level 4 in 4 semesters. My then 6 year old had to go through the Alfred's primer level before getting to 1a. So it really depends on a kid....
It worked for us and I am happy we have it. Hearing my son and ROTFLOL with every practice is just so much fun for me :)

This book is great for teaching a beginner. Some of the songs are geared towards very young children, like around the age of five or so. However, I am teaching a nine year old and she still seems to enjoy the songs and activities!

My 5-yr-old son and 2 1/2 yr old daughter love this! I love how this book teaches technic early in a very fun way. Concepts are easy to understand and the pieces are very nice. My son loves this book so much he plays everyday on his own. My daughter enjoyed learning technic and playing rhythm instruments along with the CD. A great beginner book for young pianist.

This has been a great motivator. The lessons are very, very easy, but it's the perfect place to start with a child from 3-5. We're actually using it as the 'fun review book' among other books with a bit more content. My seven year old secretly likes to watch and do it with us, even though he's pretty far beyond the level. It's just plain fun. I think they'll keep dancing to the CD after we've finished the book. (We have to listen twice; once to play along on the piano, and once to dance.)

My four year old sons use this series with their piano teacher. It is easy, fun, and captures the attention of an age group that can be hard to sit down and concentrate. The music on the CD are easy for the children to play along. The lessons are simple and to the level of a young child. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to teach a young child the wonders of the piano.

My daughter's piano teacher recommended this book. I used to buy them from other web site, which took over a week to ship. I bought this time on Amazon, and was amazed to get it in 3 days.
This is a very good beginner's piano book. My 4-year-old daughter loved it.

My 4 year old daughter (now 5) and I loved this little book and the super fun CD that comes with it. The songs are silly but very appropriate for her age and she is learning piano skills in a way that is appropriate for her little hands as well. All of my kids 7, 3 and 1 year old like listening to this CD and doing the songs with her. As an intro to piano, this is perfect and will make an enthusiastic little musician. As your child progresses through the My First Piano Adventure series I highly (read urge) you to try the Step by Step Piano Course by Edna Mae Burman along with the A Dozen a Day exercises. They are hands down the best piano course I have come across for older children.
